Credit Market

Outline of Credit Market

The term "credit market" refers to the market where financial instruments that embrace credit risk (the risk that the creditworthiness of a borrower may change) are traded.

In addition to loans, corporate bonds, and CP, the credit market in Japan now includes securitized products in which various credit risks have been pooled and credit derivatives whose underlying assets encompass credit risks.

Through discussions, the Bank supports market participants' initiatives to enhance the credit market.
